The Eternity Cure
by Julie Kagawa
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Allison Sekemoto is now caught between worlds, she is no longer human, but she is desperate to maintain her humanity, in spite of the world around her forcing her to allow the vampire inside of her to come out. She has left Eden and the bleak post-apocalyptic world is now suffering from a new form of the Red Lung Disease, and it is threatening to decimate the not only the human population, but could destroy the vampires as well. Allie discovers her “blood brother” Jackal, a rebel vampire turned long ago by her sire, Kanin, who has recently disappeared. Together these two must join forces to find Kanin before he is tortured into insanity, or worse, killed. Zeke, the human boy Allie loves shows up as the leader of a band of humans fighting to stay alive in the Fringe. Forced to find the vampire responsible for both Kanin’s torture and the spread of the new disease, Allie, Kanin, Jackal and Zeke must forge a peace treaty among themselves and hunt down the both the vampire and the alleged cure that is out there. Time is running short, tension is high, and Allie must contend with her feelings for Zeke, ones that he reciprocates. Is it possible for a human and a vampire to love each other? Can they live together safely? Is there truly a cure? Will this unlikely group find it before its too late? Not only does Allison have all of this to contend with. But she receives the shock of her immortal life when she finds an old friend is alive and working for the wrong side.
Julie Kagawa has done a fabulous job of creating edge of your seat, nail biting drama, warm and tender love, and a frighteningly real world where only the strong survive. Her smooth writing style flows from one bleak scene to another, then on to a tender moment with flawless ease.
